So let me get this straight. Christian has beaten Providence. Christian has a better record than Providence. But Providence is ranked higher. Now this deserves some kind of explanation.

This Observer bias is ridiculous. Christian has 7 more wins than Providence (their record is actually 21-3), 1 less loss, and beat Providence too. Yeah, Providence didn't have Richie Schaffer when they played, that's apart of the game and doesn't change the fact Christian beat them. Why don't you put aside your own personal agenda and vote based on record, head-to-head matchups, and strength of schedule?

providence sucks, i saw them play and it looked more like fast pitched softball, the only true baseball player ever to come out of that school beside david mailman was jason ashcroft a.k.a. THE BEAVER, If you want to catch a game providence is scrimmaging the matthews little league all star saturday at 12, then doing a topless carwash afterword, should be fun for the whole family

yea, providence is pretty weak to be number 1, i saw them play and think they should be ranked somewhere around 17th, good coach, but too many switch hitters if you know what i mean, if you not sure what that means then you can catch their infield at scorpios this thursday night

Now that Christian spanked #3 Marvin Ridge 10-0 in 5 innings, not to mention beat the #1,#3, and #7 teams in the Sweet 16, it's safe to say they should be numero uno. This could be the best squad they had since '03.

Yeah, marvin ridge got spanked by Charlotte christian, but you have to put the factors into it, Charlotte Christian had their best starting pitcher on the hill, versus marvin ridge that just came off playing 3 games in a row, and Marvin ridge wasn't even throwing their starter they threw their relief pitcher. Versus you put Shipman on the hill, or Setzer they have a much better chance.
